PSI Subsidiary Moveo Receives Order from Bus Company Voyages Emile Weber

Optimal processes with personnel dispatching and intelligent depot and charging management system

Berlin/Luxembourg, March 29, 2021 - The Luxembourg passenger transport and tourism company Voyages Emile Weber (VEW), headquartered in Canach, has awarded the PSI subsidiary Moveo Software GmbH with the delivery of the personnel dispatching system Moveo Profahr as well as the integrated depot and charging management system PSIebus.

In addition to standard functionalities such as driving and rest time checks, vacation management and data transfer to payroll accounting, the personnel dispatching system Moveo Profahr contains important supplementary modules for deadline monitoring and duty exchange. The software will support, document and control the dispatching of drivers and vehicles for all business areas and will provide operational key figures and statistics for control purposes.

The depot and charging management system PSIebus will coordinate and schedule vehicles at initially ten depots. All depot processes will be mapped in a digital system. The solution will complement the "Park+Charge" project on the eight-hectare main depot in Canach. There, Voyages Emile Weber is planning to work with the Luxembourg-based company Nexxtlab to intelligently implement the region's electricity infrastructure as a "smart grid" in order to optimally charge the current 110 electric buses (mini, midi and regular buses) . This dynamically optimizes maximum network utilization and thus eliminates the need to lay new high-voltage lines.

The integrated load and charging management system PSIsmartcharging controls the entire energy flow in the depots and monitors and controls the individual chargers. The new system enables VEW to make optimal use of its vehicles and charging infrastructure and ensures the best possible vehicle availability.

The Voyages Emile Weber Group of companies is the largest passenger transport provider in Luxembourg and employs over 1,300 people, including 800 drivers. The 600 buses (70 of which are electric) make around 3,000 trips a day in school transport and a further 250 rounds in regular service in Luxembourg and in the greater region of nearby Lorraine, Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate and Wallonia. Approximately 38,000 trips are made annually in tourist and occasional services.

PSI Group develops its own software products for integrated solutions to optimize the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy grids, energy trading, public transport) and industry (metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs more than 2,000 people worldwide.
